We are actively addressing the gender imbalance within our industries in the UK. Together with our partner organisations, we help promote science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) careers within aerospace, defence, transport, security and space through a wide range of activities, events and open days. Delivering cutting edge innovation requires a huge diversity of thought, skills and experiences and this is reflected in our need for a truly diverse workforce.
Diversity and inclusion is about creating an environment where we can all be valued for the qualities that we bring to an organisation, regardless of who we are. Being inclusive requires us all to be open minded to the world around us and, in doing so, enables greater innovation.

Having an extensive female workforce is key to diversity and inclusion. Increasing the number of women in Thales and the engineering sector is a business priority. We heavily engage with schools to promote STEM amongst young people, assuring that engineering is an attainable career path for both males and females. For a company as broad and elaborate as Thales, however, diversity needs to be applied across all disciplines and not limited to engineering.
